At this stage, you know enough Python to be dangerous.

With this book’s first four chapters behind you, you’re now in a position to productively use Python within any number of application areas (even though there’s still lots of Python to learn).

Along the way, you’ll learn a bit more about Python. Before we get going, however, let’s have a quick recap of the Python you already know.
